Our accomodation venue is set on a a 300 acre working farm in the Hunter Valley. You can choose to involve yourself in farmlife, visit our local attractions or just relax .People love that we are away from the hustle and bustle of the vineyard areas...but are still close enough to enjoy a visit with a quick 10 minute drive.
The view and the atmosphere at this farm speak for themselves...but for the time being, imagine:
*quiet country walks in areas such as along our lovely slow flowing creek that meanders through the property.
*sitting on your own verandah taking in our incredible views
*seeing your children experience nature first hand with supervised access to our guinea pigs,rabbits,chickens,sheep, goats , cows and pony.
*experiencing a building where every brick tells a story
*the knowledge that you 'just feel at home here'.
This truly is a place that will appeal to families or couples .
Special things about your accomodation include:
*kitchenette *luxurious lounge room with spectacular ceiling *large dining table *out door picnic table *small tables and chairs that can be kept in your room or placed on the open verandah* fresh rainwater for your shower and bath
facilities *large wall mounted television set with dvd player in each of the two bedrooms *books and dvds kept in the lounge area for you to borrow whilst you are staying here.
*organic vegetable garden
The Farmstay Building
The farmstay bedrooms can accomodate from 2 to 6 people. This building has been purpose built to give an old world feel with a feeling of grandeur and luxury added to the mix. Building materials have been sourced from as far as Bega on the south coast and from historic buildings in Newcastle....as well as local products.This is a building that tells you a story of how it came to be , at a glance....and your hosts will be only to happy to share a story or two on how it was built.
Each room has air conditioning for year round comfort. We are also blessed with a gorgeous sunroom for those blustery winter days. Just imagine soaking up the sun in the comfort of your enclosed verandah on a cold winter's day with a glass of the valley's finest wine in your hand!
Family antiques grace the beautiful private lounge /dining area and make for interesting dinner conversation over a bottle of red.You might even spot the distinctive 'dog footprints ' in the old sandstock bricks around the fireplace.
Your dining table overlooks lush farmland and the local creek . You have three different spectacular views from the rooms ,verandah and dining area...but nothing tops the verandah sunset from the seating area on the western side of the house!
Other areas that provide little retreats are the sun room overlooking our pastures and a private courtyard/BBQ area.There is also the opportunity to just walk around and explore this beautiful farm....afterall 300 acres is plenty of room to stretch the legs!
We built the accomodation area with families in mind, and have a kitchenette facility with microwave avaliable for guests also. A high chair is also avaliable .
We can cater for allergies if notified ahead of arrival ...and have particular experience in dealing with the needs of gluten free adults and children.
We have a variety of packages available including:
Just email us and tell us what you need and we will tailor a package to suit.
Your packages entitle you to the entire farmstay apartment (apart from the budget package) ....basically the size of most suburban homes but with luxury galore!
Kim and David offer a rare accommodation style that is totally welcoming and what I would classify as a true 'farm stay'. My family stayed with them for a week and in that time just missed the birth of two beautiful kids by one day but did get to enjoy the new guinea pig babies that arrived on the Wednesday. Kim's passion for the farm and her guests is second to none offering a totally personalised visit where you can choose to participate as much or as little in the farm activities as you like. My two boys had a ball cuddling all the animals and helping with feeding time. The transformation in our oldest son was amazing, initially having no idea how to interact with all the animals, but by week's end he was much more like a 'farm hand' in the feeding and of course cuddling. The accommodation is also 5 star with individual air conditioners for each room and the most warming front room with potbelly stove (stoked daily to keep you warm in winter). There are too many good things to explain in this review, only to say that you need to try this place out for yourself and see what a farm stay should be!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
